Not getting any play?
Because the betting hasn't changed. Lines aren't about handicapping the game, they're about splitting the wagers 50/50 so the house can clear their cut on the push.
This was my guess, there's probably about $200 total riding on this game.
If gambling were legal, I'd be banging Stanford. There's no way we cover.
No ****, but you'd think the betting would change after that news.
our ****tiness is already priced into the line.
surely i can't be the only person to bet on this game
Why? When's the last time you saw a line bigger than 30 pts? More importantly, who's going to bet a team to cover a 5 TD spread? It's a sucker game nobody's going to lay money on.
in about 1981 or 82, i took CU +49 and lost.
Stanford +41 @ USC 2007
Kansas at Oklahoma State, Sat 10/8 at 3:30 PM ET -33.0
I'm also surprised that more money hasn't come in on Stanford. I'm guessing that people placing bets aren't following things closely enough to even know about our suspensions. :huh:
The line actually opened around -27.5. The day before suspensions were announced line moved up to 29.5-30 at most places and is now back down to 29 this evening.
nobody wants to touch this game with a ten foot pole...
laying 30 points isn't something good gamblers do a lot.
CU has dropped 13 of its last 14 vs Top 10 teams being outscored 38-12. Take CU and the points!
not in the 2nd week in October, 3rd conference game. if it's Oklahoma-Indiana State or CHatanooga maybe.,,,
i wouldn't touch this game with a 40 foot pole. we might cover, we might lose by 50.
I'd rather lose this game by 35 points with 3 or 4 penalties than by 20 points with our usual 10 penalties. A blowout from a more talented team over disciplined, substandard players is easier to take than knowing that we could've competed if we didn't have our heads up our own asses.
